One of the most commonly asked questions I get is why did I decide to become a massage therapist?
I was always a very sensitive child growing up from a very young age I became aware extremely quickly of other peoples emotions and intuitively could sense when they were upset or needed comfort. At first I would consider this hyper sensitivity as a curse as I would be affected so easily by other peoples words and actions but as I got older I saw it as a blessing as I began to naturally tune into people and could intuitively sense when they needed a hug or a back rub to make them feel better.
It was then that I realized what if I could take this sensitivity and intuition and use it to help people,to somehow make a difference to help ease their pain and improve their lives in some way. I was 16 years old when I made the decision to let my heart and hands guide me and now at almost 47 years old with over 30 years of experience I can honestly say with every day that passes my passion for my work only gets stronger.
Massage is not simply going through the motions, it's connecting with that person on a deep level and taking the time to understand what they need then tuning into their energy to do all you can to help them,its a real labor of love for me and over the years it has made me realize you can never underestimate the power of touch. It is something as human beings we all need from the time of our birth to our senior years and it has the power to change peoples lives for the better.
It is one of the most ancient forms of healing and the benefits are immeasurable,it can soothe a troubled mind,relieve physical pain and even help mind a broken heart it is also incredibly rewarding to know you have somehow made a difference in improving someones health and well being and for me there is nothing more important than that.
Have you ever wanted to learn the art of massage and do not have the finances or time to commit to a course? Now you can learn the basics in one day,a combination of theory and practical work so boost your skills and try something a little different,designed for couples or friends. An educational and fun way to spend the day!
I'm delighted to say that I am now teaching workshops in Tantric,Holistic,Hawaiian and Pregnancy Massage as I feel after 30 years of actively practicing and running my own business with clients this is the next step for me. Only one couple or 2 people at a time will be taught so the sessions can be tailored specifically to your individual needs.
Teaching is something I have always aspired to do there is no greater gift then sharing the knowledge of what you are passionate about with others.
A certificate of attendance will be given on the day. For further information and to see the workshops available please see the link below: http://www.yourinnerglow.co.uk/…
From the time we are born the relationships we begin to form become an integral and essential part of our existence, beginning with our mother who brings us into the world as the circle of life constantly evolves ensuring our survival. As we grow from children to adults we become less dependent on our caregivers and learn to establish relationships within ourselves which will be heavily influenced by experiences from our own childhood. For those fortunate enough to have had a secure and affectionate upbringing it will be much easier to form a healthy and loving relationship with ourselves and others,but for those less fortunate it is essential for our own personal growth and development that we learn to form a positive self image as if we do not love and respect our own hearts and bodies we cannot expect that other people will do so.
If we do not have sufficient grounding in our own bodies and minds we can feel out of control and actively look to outside influences so we can re gai…
